Use UTP which is adjacent to power line
leo May-19-00 04:13 AM
Hi there

I'd like to ask if I use UTP which is adjacent to power line, can the UTP works normal for data transmission, and will it cause data lose? There will have 1/3 or 1/2 portions of every UTP be adjacent to power line from their own PVC conduit on the ground. There're also 24 workstations at the same floor linking up to a hub or patch panel. For those power line adjacent to UTP, they're not for air conditioning, but general usage like computer, printer, and copier.

Could anyone please help me??

hi leo, the a/c is probrably in its own conduit or greenfield (flexable conduit). if it is, you probrably will not have a problem. the only way to know this is if you have who ever installed it test it with a cat 5 tester and NOT a continuity tester. if the electrician ran the cables, he most likely will not have one of these. the electricians motto is " well, wire is wire" they have no regard for any standards that are made for this type of cable. your best bet is to keep the two as far away from one another as possible.good luck, jay
